Have you or a loved one been harmed in an accident? If you have been hurt due to the negligence of others, Sisemore Law Firm, P.C., will approach your case aggressively and with dedication while you seek a full recovery.

Along with our comprehensive family law practice, our attorneys have extensive experience representing plaintiffs who have been injured by the negligence or wrongful act of another party. We can help you obtain compensation for your injuries and put the pain and suffering of the incident behind you.

For recovery in a personal injury lawsuit, a plaintiff must prove that the defendant was negligent and this behavior caused the plaintiff's injuries. You may even be able to recover if you were also negligent in the accident causing your injuries. Under the Texas proportionate responsibility theory of liability, plaintiffs may still recover if they were negligent, provided their negligence is no more than 50 percent of the total that caused their injuries. As long as the other party was more negligent, you may still recover for your injuries. However, your recovery will be reduced by the percentage of fault attributable to your own negligence.

While many personal injury lawsuits are the result of auto accidents, many others are the result of injuries sustained on another's property. Whether an injury involves a slip-and-fall, a cut or laceration on a sharp object, or even a traumatic head injury, liability is often determined by the nature of the victim's relationship to the property owner and the nature of the visit. Texas law limits the liability of agricultural and recreational landowners. Trespassers are prohibited from recovery if injured, unless they can prove gross negligence on the part of the agricultural landowner. Lawsuits against recreational landowners are also limited by maximum recovery amounts under Texas statutory law.

Despite these limitations, you may be able to recover for your injuries on another's land regardless of whether you are an invitee (on the property for the landowner's business purposes) or a licensee (on the property as a non-business guest). If the landowner was negligent and failed to warn you of a hidden danger they should have reasonably known about, our attorneys can help you seek damages for the injuries you have suffered. If your child has been injured because of an attractive nuisance on another party's land, you may have a claim for damages, despite your child's trespass onto the land.

We also assist clients in Texas product liability actions. If you were injured as a result of a consumer product's design defect, manufacturing defect or inadequate warning label, we can assist you in bringing a claim against the manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer that sold you the product.

Personal injury lawsuits require experienced representation from attorneys who conduct thorough, independent investigations, are familiar with settlement negotiations and have extensive trial experience.

Our attorneys are recognized throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area for these abilities, and we can help you seek a full recovery. Contact Sisemore Law Firm, P.C., at 817-900-3875 today for a free consultation.
